Guidetti makes City comeback
Striker John Guidetti marked his first appearance in Manchester City colours in 18 months with a goal in the reserves.
Guidetti has been out of action for nine months with a knee injury and also had an extended spell on loan at Dutch club Feyenoord.
The Swede took just nine minutes of his comeback to hit the target, sliding in to finish off Marcos Lopes' cross.
Jose Angel Pozo and Albert Rusnak wrapped up a 3-1 win for City, with Reading's consolation coming through Lawson D'Ath.
